In this unit, students focus on quadratics. They start by looking at how to expand the product of two linear expressions by multiplying brackets, and then factorising quadratic expressions back into brackets. They look at the particularly case of the difference of two squares before using their skills in factorising quadratic expressions to solve quadratic equations.
